MiLB.com has a nice article about Curtis Peterson’s debut last night, as well as the attempted robbery he stopped last week:
Petersen plays hero ahead of debut
By Paige Schector / MLB.com
After coming through the incident unscathed, Petersen was ready to make his debut Monday.
“I felt good,” he said. “The fastball is not there yet, but my curve and changeup were working. I pitched downhill. It was respectable.”
In his first full season, Petersen knows there’s a long road ahead and time to improve.
“I want to get hitters out earlier in counts in a long, long season,” he said. “I may not have as many strikeouts. Get some ground balls, go for easy outs and hopefully pitch deep into games.”
Curt looked great on the mound. Too bad the Hoppers blew the game in the ninth. I’m looking forward to seeing more of him as the season progresses.
